Unfortunately, this series was rather boring. I had to watch it in my grade 11 and 12 french classes. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love french, it was after all my first language, but this is a french soap opera, which is not really my sort of thing. I understand that in those days, there wasn't really much to do other than have kids and die, but I think it's highly unnecessary to make an entire 20 film series out of it. I would rather read Petit Prince (Antoine De St. Exupery) any day! However, if you do enjoy soap operas, and can understand french, well go for it: dive into the world of Emilie Bordeleau. And if you enjoyed Les Filles De Caleb, I recommend reading Maria Chapdelaine (I'm an unsure of the author).
